Miami, Florida – Tomorrow Friday January 25th at 10:00 am, Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) will participate in the XXXIX Parada Escolar Martiana sponsored by Lincoln Marti School and its founder Demetrio Perez, Jr. Walking in the parade is a years long tradition for Cong.

Said Ros-Lehtinen, “I congratulate Demetrio Perez, Jr for this noble endeavor which he and the Lincoln Marti School’s undertake every year. The Parada Martiana celebrates the birth of Cuban apostle Jose Marti and even after all these years of walking the parade it invigorates me seeing so many young students participating in it. Undoubtedly, the Parada Martiana keeps Jose Marti’s principles alive in our youth.”
